Thanks to you, our generous funders and supporters, we closed out 2019 with a very strong Holiday Campaign! Altogether, including the matching grant from our friends at Delta Scrap and Salvage, 167 donors contributed over $105,000! This is a very promising way to enter 2020, which also marks our 20th year in business.
This year's holiday campaign raised 20% more than last year. We are exceptionally thankful for the 77 new individual donors, our consistent past donors, and those who supported our successful Giving Tuesday campaign!
We couldn't have achieved this record breaking year without the generous matching grant from Ken Graunstadt of Delta Scrap & Salvage. Ken has been a strong supporter since 2014. In regards to the matching donation, Ken says, "I am thankful to Opportunity Junction for giving me a great local organization to support."
With the 2019 Holiday Campaign efforts behind us, we enter 2020 with ambitious goals to advance our programs and serve more motivated job seekers than ever before. If you would like to support us in our 20th year, we are currently looking for:
- New Members of the Bell Ringers Club: Bell Ringers Club members offer a set donation for each job seeker who we help place into employment. It provides us year-round funding and a fundraising incentive that directly reflects our program progress and outcomes.
- 20th Anniversary Gala Support: Our annual Imagine Gala falls on April 25th 2020 - where we will be celebrating our 20th year serving the community! We are seeking: Sponsorships, Auction Items, Committee Volunteers, and we are selling Tickets for those who wish to attend!
No matter how you choose to support our work, whether through donations, volunteering your time, or spreading the word about Opportunity Junction's programs, we thank you for being part of the Opportunity Junction family.
